Recreating a 2009 German experiment reported in the Journal of Sensory Perception, e-Luminate worked with the Cambridgeshire Wine School to create an immersive sensory experience for all.

The wines were kindly sponsored by Bosca (, whilst the lighting effects were provided by Pulsar ( We are very grateful to bot for their contribution.
A special thanks to Gonville and Caius College ( for giving us access to the stunning Fellows’ Dining Room to run this unique event.
